WOO with Smartwatch?

Postby Leon van Bergen » Thu Dec 27, 2018 9:10 pm

Hi Guys,

I wonder if people use their Woo 3.0 in combination with a smartwatch and if so, does it work well and what watch you have?
If it works nice and it is fun I’ll keep it in mind and a few watches will fall off immediately.

Thanks!

I have Sony Smartwatch 3. App works nicely but my complaint is that I cannot use screenlock so water dropplets on watch screen will cause app to exit which is annoying.

According to this YT video it has something to do with gestures




Can't you just turn them off or can't you use a screen protector maybe that will help ? https://support.google.com/wearos/answe ... ic=6056409

BTW woo comes in 2019 with a new game called free ride modus. Post a Freeride session after riding with your smartwatch or phone. Hmmm so you probably don't need a smart watch for it, although riding with one would be more of a comfort. Progress your riding and Get in the Game! It will probably use the GPS in the smartwatch I think.

Hi Maffhieu,

No problem, I also have an Iphone but don't like the Apple watches so you seem to have to do the first connect with an android phone and then you no longer need it.

@ Joriws thanks, now I know I should not buy that one..

Anyone uses a Fossil Q Sport, Ticwatch, Misfit Vapor ?

Leon, it is a common WearOS problem, not Smartwatch specific. Normally double tapping physical key enters screenlock but with Woo app it exits.

Guys, bought a Apple watch 3 Nike for less toen €300 and tested it yesterday with the Woo and I must say it works really nice!
It fits only a little messy between my wetsuit and gloves but yes, it’s just cold in the Netherlands at the moment.
